Killing Joke - Releasing 35th Anniversary Singles Collection, Announce 2013 Shows

Killing Joke will celebrate their 35th anniversary in style, starting in 2013 with the release of The Singles Collection 1979-2012 through Spinefarm/Universal on April 15th and a world tour starting in Europe. This important year will also see the band release a new studio album.

Killing Joke have also signed a brand new deal with Spinefarm Records, and will soon set about recording a third studio album for the label. The release date of this new studio album is likely to be late 2013.

The Singles Collection 1979 - 2012 is released on three formats - DL, Limited Edition CD and Super Deluxe Edition. For all the details about the different formats, go here.

Vocalist Jaz Coleman stated: "Considering it's supposed to be the end of the world in a short time, it gives me great pleasure to announce a new singles album with some real rarities on it, shortly followed by a new studio recording. The book Letters From Cythera is coming out, and yes, gigs are starting in March. Have a great 2012 and fuck the Mayans! After all, their calendar didn't predict their own demise..."
